Chinese text is more complicated to read, while Japanese is more simple, but still hard to read.. they both use the same text too, so it's hard to tell without knowing what most of the text means, you could always ask your girlfriend if she's friends with any of the Chinese people at her uni if they could tell?

It looks Chinese to me.. but that's just from looking at the cover..

Say Hello to my GIANT Collection!

Ok you all just had to push me. I know what you were thinking....

You were all like "Otakings collection isn't that big. It's not that impressive. Pics are all fuzzy and you can't see any titles. Probably not even double stacked either. Probably just empty cardboard cases behind that first row"

So I had to go and 'waste' half my day taking close up pics of EVERYTHING. Anime DVD/VHS and Manga and random STUFF! I still haven't done my toy/figure collection yet. Just.....couldn't handle it....

So behold below the MANY....many pics.....omg....why........

Yeah that was exactly what I was thinking after seeing your pitiful collection in your first post. Now to fully appreciate all of your new pics.

And a Meowth. And a Mantyke. (Where's wally would be much easier with pokemon.)

But the other Pikachu's not as good. And Jigglypuff's cool in Smash Bros, but pikachhu is way more awesome. PIKACHU!!!

You ever fear that you have too much stuff?

I mean, I have a wall dedicated to my LPs and record player, but I don't think it's as extensive as your collection(s).

Not really. I usually worry that I DON'T have enough stuff. I stress about having incomplete sets and just think about how or when I will complete them.
















































AND VHS TO END THE MADNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Yeah "not enough" was my immediate reaction to those pics too.

Video cassettes? You must be over 100 years old :P
Kidding, I still have some too.. just no video player to play them in.. I don't even buy DVDs anymore..

Have you managed to watch all of those? there must be like a lifetime supply of anime there.

Lol Hydro. Actually the security is pretty lacking around here....

Yeah I used to have a lot of VHS. Those are just the ones I haven't converted to DVD yet or were simply never released on DVD. As my pic a page ago showed I only have 4 blu ray sets currently.

And no. I've probably only watched about 70% of everything. However there are shows I've watched numerous times.

Otaking, how many books are there roughly? The biggest fear for me being a collector is eventually running out of room/shelf space, and when things get so hectic you have to stack things on top of each other.

Just some random figures and Bleach stuff. I'll have to go through and search the cupboard for the DBZ figures later. A lot of figures had to be put away to make way for all the manga.





Pokemon time! Had this collection since 1999, not sure if I should sell them or not. There's at least a few hundred in here alone among the 20 or so stacks of plastic folders. Not including the unorganized box full of 'em under the bed.





A few rare cards on display. I actually have a few ancient Mews. The American versions though, not the super rare Japanese version. These used to be 15-20 a pop back in the day.

Single as in don't have a partner who objectively classifies my entire collection as "childish", confuses figures with "toys" and anime as "cartoons" all while looking at me and saying those dreaded words "grow up"? Yes, you are correct.

The collection is the only thing I would in front of the pussy. The first rule of the collector club is...don't let girls in your room. >_>

Girl: What are these supposed to be?

Me: Those are Pokemon cards dear. Please don't get fingerprints on them.

Girl: Are these like Christmas cards that you send off then?

Me: -_-

I actually do not have a number on how many manga/dvd/anything I have. I'll have to count them some day. But I add to it so often that the numbers get old fast. And yes my collection spreads over like....4 rooms and I am WAY outta space. I'm hoping to get a better job very soon so I can buy a bigger house. It's crazy. I have SO many figures here there and EVERYWHERE that I could never get them all together.

But here are some Pikachu's!

I have those empty packages of Pikachu and Clefairy but I have NO idea where the actual figures are. It's annoying me. I also just went through the other cases and took pics of my other figures but I'm AGAIN missing some. WTF is going on here!?!?!?!

Also how is this still on page 7!? It's the longest page ever!
